19
Found 8th Oct 2009
I want to keep all my options open when looking for a new mobile phone contract. I'm currently with orange and my 18 month contract ends 13th november (36 days time).

Do i Have to give my 30 days notice to cancel in 5-6 days time?

If i'm able to give notice earlier what are the implications?

30 days notice



clue.......................
"clue......................."

I'm not looking to cancel earlier, i just want to make sure I don't end up paying extra on top of my contract should i choose to change vendor.

If someone was to ask me to give 5 days notice to state i was not going to attend an event i would guess they would want to know before the 5 days not after.
if its 30 days notice you give 30 days notice - its not hard
Yes, if your contract ends on 13 November, the earliest you can give notice is 30 days prior to that, which is the 14 October. After that, I think you can give your 30days notice anytime....

you seem a bit quick to put people down i'm just looking for advice.

From what I understand I have to wait for the 30th day before my contract ends, not before!

What are the implications of ring up with 15 days before my contract ends would 15 days of phone use be added to my contract?

Yes, you need to give the complete 30 days notice, so if you give notice on, say, 1 November, your contract would end on 1 December.
Actually the notice depends on what you want to do. If you want to keep your number then you get a PAC, you have 30 days to use this. If you dont use it then your account continues to run until you give 30 days notice to cancel.

You cannot give 30 days notice to cancel and request a PAC at the same time its one of the other. So you will need to decide if you want to take your number with you, or just cancel before you ring Orange.

Not quite correct from my own experience. My 12 month contract with Orange expires on 11 November 2009. I gave them notice last week. 30 Days is the minimum notice period required. Of course you still have to meet your contractual obligations.

He he, I'm only speaking from experience with Orange. If I decide to let anyone know the termination date with a minimum of 30 days notice (even on day one of the contract) then it's their issue if they don't have the systems to cope with my instruction (keep the proof though)

It's the same with most things, for peace of mind, some sort of contact where you can establish receipt. Voice/email/written will all be fine if you can ensure the receipient acknowledges your request.
dunno it all seems hard work for me, wont have to worry last one was a 24 month contract and still got 18 months left yet - lol
when you give ur 30 days notice if you have a bill produced in this period you will be charged the 1 months line rental for that bill, but when you do terminate they will refund the time u didnt use for that month ie. put notice in 30 oct to end contratct 30 nove, bill produced 15th november with 1 months line rental, terminate on 30 nove and get a refund of 15 days.

You can give your notice now but they will charge you the full line rental until the end of your contract
you can cancel at any time, given the 30 days notice, the reason for this is that you pay them for the next month as a kind of repayment of ending your contract
